South Zone villa description

Stay for $100 per day or less! Add an all inclusive option for just $25 per day per guest. Rate is based on 8 guests. More guests? Lower rate per guest! See our rate information for more details.

Villa Karaway (VK) is the ultimate Puerto Vallarta Beach Villa! A rare find on the powdery sands of Puerto Vallarta. The home is RIGHT on the beach. Please read the entire description, but first some ideas to save money and select the proper home.

When shopping for a home for your hard earned vacation in PV, make sure the ask the following:
1. Is the home right on the beach, or do you have to walk to the beach?
2. Is there SAND on the beach? Except for downtown and north of town, sandy beaches are rare. We have sand on our beach!
3. Are there any additional charges? VK rates are all inclusive, you just pay for the food and drinks that our chief prepares, along with tips.
4. Exactly where are you located in PV? No hype from us. You are 6 km south of town (about 12 minutes away), so you have the town amenities, without the hustle an bustle. We are right on the bus route (50 cents to town), or cabs are usually parked by the complex ($6 into town).

With over 4000 square feet of pure luxury, this four bedroom, five bath vacation rental is ideal for corporate meetings, family reunions, or just an intimate get-away. Many rooms have 12-foot high ceilings - just right for bringing in the incredible views of the Bay and Mountain Ranges around Puerto Vallarta.

See the end of this description for other guest comments, but this comment from a NYC guest sums it up - 'Absolute Paradise!' Make sure the visit our web site for even more pictures and information. The address is listed at the bottom.

Make no mistake - this villa is right on the beach. The beach is beautiful with a protective rock reef creating a wonderful family swimming area and an incredible sandy beach. Let the professional staff of a full-time maid and gourmet cook pamper you. It is your vacation - so enjoy it!

You enter your two-story vacation home (named 'Villa Karaway') from a private iron gate into a masterfully constructed tiled hallway. To the right, past the sitting area, is the lower bedroom with two single beds, which can be make into a king bed (all bedrooms have air conditioning), a walk-in closet, and private bath. Close by is the washer and dryer. To the left of the hallway is the open-air patio with splendid plants.

Up five tile-covered steps is another hallway. Turn left and you enter the gourmet kitchen (Viking stove, Sub-Zero refrigerator - but why care - you have your own chef!), bar, walk-in pantry, table for four, and bathroom. Proceeding past the kitchen is the dining room with seating for eight. Past the dining room is the living room with floor-to-ceiling glass sliding walls to another outdoor patio with lighted palms, the downstairs porch, and the private infinity pool. Just past your pool is the wondrous Los Palmares Beach.

Proceed the other way down the entrance-way hallway and you arrive at bedroom two. This is a bedroom with one queen and one king bed, a large walk-in closet, and an even larger bathroom. There is a large window that opens to the interior patio.

Up the stairs further is bedroom three with two double beds, 12-foot high ceiling, a large window opening to the interior patio, TV and VCR, and private bath.

Further down the hallway is the ultimate, master bedroom with a king-size bed. Floor-to-ceiling movable windows separate the bedroom to the upstairs patio. There is also a large window providing a view to the famous Los Arcos islands just off the shore of Puerto Vallarta. The master also contains a sitting area, large walk-in closet, and a bath that is also a jetted tub, steam, and a ten-side spigot shower. For those that are traditional, a normal showerhead is available. A telescope is provided to further enjoy the breathtaking views. These views include dolphins and whales playing in one of the largest bays on the continent.

You will NOT be DISAPPOINTED with Karaway or the Los Palmares facilities! Villa Karaway is part of the classy Los Palmares condominium complex. It was recently completed in late 1999. Everything is in tip top condition, including the large infinity pool, jacuzzi, kid's pool, and exercise room. There is also ample parking and 24-hour security. It is located just under six kilometers to the south of downtown Puerto Vallarta and is on the city bus route for easy transportation.

We have wireless high speed internet connection. So bring your laptop or use the computer provided at the Villa. We also have a phone for free, unlimited phone calls back to the US and Canada.

Guest book comments (we would put in more, but have a space limitation):
'What a breathtaking house surrounded by such a magnificent setting. I now have a concrete vision of what heaven might really look like when I close my eyes. I honestly don't think that it is possible to describe with mere words. From the lush, green hillside to the sun setting into the ocean...from Adela's unbelievable Mexican feast to the kind smiles and welcoming faces of everyone we encountered...It is truly a memory that we will carry with us forever.

'What a marvelous place to come and visit. We just don't want to go home. God's seam between land and water, and right in the middle is your beautiful casa.' -Guests, Denver, CO

'WOW!' - Austin TX

'If you don't love this - give up! You won't be happy in heaven!' - Chicago, IL

                          Year Purchased: 1999

                          About the owner: Hello, our names are Karen and Wayne Harding and live in Denver Colorado. We have four wonderful adult children. We love to travel. Since we work hard, when we get away we want to spoiled and pampered. We purchased each of our properties with this in mind. A great place to relax, unwind and enjoy - in style!

                          Why the Owner Chose South Zone:
                          Villa Karaway is our crown jewel in our properties holdings. It is a expertly staffed villa right on a sandy beach. When we walked through the recently completed construction in 1999, we absolutely fell in love with the building, the location, the facilities and the views - wow! The views!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Sit back and relax and let our gourmet chef (Elba) fix you wonderful local food and beverages. Our full time maid (Gloria) makes sure that your castle next to the sand and ocean is spotless. If you do wonder out of your palace, visit some fine restaurants, explore the rain forest, shop at the near by downtown area, surf, boat, fish, zip line, or relax in your own beach side infinity pool and watch the sun sink into the ocean. During winter you will also see plenty of sea life including whales - right from your porch!
